Description

I made Taos Man Handle on the potter’s wheel with stoneware clay. The bottom is flat and the handle roomy enough for bigger hands! I pull the handle directly from the Taos Man Handle mug giving it a natural look and feel. A thumb stop is added for additional comfort.

I impressed the “window” design on opposite sides of the mug using a scavenged tire weight!  Picking up smashed tire weights on the roadside gives me a variety of interesting stamp options.

The “Taos” glaze is a technique I have developed over time of dipping blue, then green glazes, then splashing and trailing cream across the seam.  Next I dip the rim in red gold.  Lately, I have taken to a fat paint brush that I use to daub blooms sporadically over the surface. The blooms fire out bright blue with gold edges and remind of clouds parading across the open sky of a Northern New Mexico landscape.

5” H.  Well-balanced and light weight. Holds 16 oz

Sip comfortably from the beaded rim.  Enjoy your favorite hot or cold beverage. Collect different mugs or create a set.  You will never go back to those cheap, poured ceramic mugs once you’ve used a handmade pottery mug.  Stoneware is durable and long-lasting.

Makes a great birthday, holiday, housewarming, thank you, or anytime gift.

Microwave and dishwasher safe.
